Bartlett lauds Jamaica Suppliers Directory as "innovative"

Tourism Minister Edmund Bartlett says the Jamaica Suppliers Directory is an innovative online-based initiative that will bolster the Tourism Linkages Network’s efforts of increasing consumption of locally-produced goods.
Speaking at the launch of the directory during a meeting of the Tourism Linkages Council at the Ministry of Tourism’s New Kingston offices, Minister Bartlett said the online directory is a step in the right direction as it will tackle the leakages in the economy.
He highlighted that a 2014 report conducted by the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP), showed that the Caribbean, though being the most tourism dependent region, had the highest level of leakage of tourism expenditure.
